|About Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club|
Rated 4 stars by Golf Digest’s Places to Play for 2008, Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club’s magnificent Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed championship golf course was carved from a pristine swath of land atop the highest point in Tarrant County. Jones took full advantage of the existing topography’s sweeping panoramic vistas and bounty of lush foliage to create a compelling par-72, 6,953-yard test of golf that exhilarates and delights at every turn.
Jones crafted this Texas golf gem in the old style, leaving the terrain completely natural. Offering a perfect balance of playability and strategy, the course features undulating Bermuda fairways framed by corridors of stately oak trees, including numerous doglegs; meticulously manicured, tiered bentgrass greens; an abundance of white sand bunkers; and breathtaking views. Jones’ reverence for nature is evident in every rugged bend. The picturesque Big Bear Creek comes into play on 16 of the 18 holes, with numerous lakes and tributaries adding to the course’s spectacular beauty…as well as its challenge.
While difficult enough to test the mettle of scratch golfers, multiple tees on each hole enable golfers of all abilities to enjoy the subtle nuances and unique design elements that have brought Jones worldwide acclaim. Among the numerous tournaments that have been held at Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club are the 2007 Texas State Public Links Championships; the 2008 Gateway Tour; the 2008 Texas Mid Amateur Qualifier; and the 2007 and 2008 U.S. Amateur Qualifier.
